I really like the boots. At first, I thought I'd sell them, bit I just like them too much. I'll post some pics in a couple of days. Not at home now.

Hit my long-distance honey-hole but nothing all that brag-worthy...a few decent items nonetheless.

 

Theory pants.  Genuinely seem NWOT but maybe worn once or twice.

Jack Victor gabardine slacks, NWT.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

Bill's Khakis shirt, NWT.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

The best BB pants I have ever seen.  NWT.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

Vintage-ish Suzuki nylon windbreaker.

An Etro shirt I would actually wear...for you to poop on.

Boss Orange.

J. Press - second time found, first time worth buying (other way a tie totally shot).

Canali.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

Robert Graham NWT.

Generic BB but bought it because I have 4 or 5 others in XL, polo-style, I'm gonna bundle for the 'bay.

Paul Smith.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

Decided to look at belts, which I rarely (never) do.

BB 346 (avoid), made in Italy (OK, buy).

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

Well-enjoyed Missoni, made in Italy.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

Not familiar with this brand - "Leather Man Ltd.", but a lobster belt hand-made in CT might be nice for the Paul & Shark crowd.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

Thought this might be the score of the day, but checking eBay they don't seem to go for much...  Trafalgar genuine crocodile belt, made in USA.  No chips/cracks, in pretty good nick but not minty or anything.  The shop also had 2 other Trafalgar belts tagged at $40 each, and an Allen Edmonds also $40, which I did not buy...since this one was [significantly less].  A bunch of beat-up Coach men's belts for $6, too (passed).

Nope

I haven't gotten out much over the last couple of months and won't much for the rest of the summer either, but I have found a few things worth bragging.

I never find decent belts in anything other than terrible condition, so I'm actually considering having these shortened by about 3" to fit. (Shortened by moving the buckle.) Has anyone tried this, and is it worth the trouble?
Coach belt in tan Coach belt in tan (Click to show)


BB belt in burgundy BB Burg Belt (Click to show)



Last week I stumbled across my second Hermes tie, first one in decent shape. I don't usually wear yellow ties, but we'll see.



At least I'm back to reading the thread a couple of times a day, hopefully in the fall I can even get back to the thrifts a bit more often.

That's licensed Lanvin. Wow, ancient Brionis are cool! I would keep it for bragging rights. I doubt they go for much on the bay.

Tagged 40in / 100cm, so the smallest it would fit would be about a 36" waist unless it was trimmed (bad idea) and new hole(s) punched.

I think the only decent Lanvin I've seen just says "Lanvin" without the backwards and forwards multiple-L graphic...and it's pretty much a monochromatic color, like, silver "LANVIN" on a dark silver tag.  Can't find an example in google image search...but definitely without all those L's...

Car talk below...

 

car talk (Click to show)

Today I saw what I am pretty sure was my car that I sold in 1988...1967 Firebird 400 convertible. Was behind the guy for miles and finally met at a traffic light - asked him if it was a '67 or '68 (forgot that the corner windows give away the year) - told me it was a '67.  Told him I had the same car, color etc years ago, sold it, wished I'd kept it.  He said he bought his car in the same year, in the same city, as I'd sold mine.  Chances?  Pretty slim it was a different car.  He'd since put a fuel-injected V8 in it.  I congratulated him on not being one of the millions of guys who want / own a late 60's Camaro (sorry, Wes!) and he said "Oh, I have two of those as well - a Yenko and a normal convertible, and am looking for a '67 Firebird sedan to round out the set."   When he said "Yenko" I knew he had some serious money lying around...should have followed him home and forced him to adopt me.

I'm on my way here...

450 tables. It's usually pretty ridiculous. I probably won't find any menswear...except maybe some cufflinks. If there is anything also anyone wants me to look for, just PM me. You never know what I will find.

Emma and I were at a boot sale this morning and after I'd only managed a vintage Cecil Gee, pure cashmere, fly-front overcoat, she phoned me and told me she'd found me 4 blazers for £12 total. I met her, handed over the £12 and it walked off with 1 x Burberrys' navy melton DB, 2 x Aquascutum navy worsted DBs and 1 x Aquascutum navy linen DB. It was only when I was putting them away in the car that I discovered they were all ladies' blazers

She still has absolutely no idea of gender buttoning gggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr baldy[1].gif
